It looks epic, oreo-94! I love that it included all those extra weapons of his :) If I ever come upon one myself, I might just have to buy it!

Well he arrived today! And he's just as awesome as I expected! He says a multitude of phrases such as "Names XR, stands for experimental robot, how ya doin?" "IUts time to find us a new intergalactic adventure!" "Ok ranger, its time to confront zurg!" etc.... He also has different phrases depending on what weapon or weapons are plugged in. He breaks down into seperate pieces, you can take him apart at the arms,legs,feet,head,and helmet. The hands however cannot be removed because they are attached to a string that simulates his arms extending though it doesnt seem to cool in my opinion. He comes up to about the half way mark on Zurg and if I had him unpacked, i think probaby Buzz's waist.Heres a link to more pics :D

That is such a cool action figure!

I like to think the BLOSC TV show was just Disney cheating, and doesn't exist in the Pixar TS universe. I loved the show when I was little, but it is by no means worthy of the title canon. Or Pixar.

That. To me, it's not canon.

I know I'm in the minority for viewing it as canon but I choose to. As much as I love having XR I am bummed out that there is no booster or mira to finish the team

It's canon to me in that it's probably the show that made Andy want to get a Buzz Lightyear in the first place :) However you feel about BLOSC, positively or negatively, John Lasseter did come up with the original concept on showing the "real" Buzz Lightyear in a cartoon even if it ended up being mostly Disney's doing with Jeff Pidgeon as a Pixar consultant.

I think of it as canon for a few reasons one of them is just my nostalgia of it but another is a theory I worked out as to how it can be canon. In blosc the pizza planet aliens are there now at first this seems odd considering in the first film the aliens and more importantly buzz for that mater didn't know each other but look at it like this what if pizza planet was a sponsor for the buzz Lightyear cartoon that could explain as to why the aliens exist with in the show hell the even mention pizza planet by name in one episode and as to why neither buzz or the aliens knew each other well if the show is canon then it would have had to come on tv in the toy story universe some time after toy story 2 because in the buzz Lightyear movie the opening is the toys watching it and Jessie is there. though that's just my theory i'd know to know what you think about it or what your theories are.

That's a good theory. Also, Woody was from TV, and he didn't recognize his round-up gang until he was informed and saw some of his show. I just see it as un-canon personally because it was produced by DisneyToon, and I wouldn't have the pedestal I place Pixar on tarnished by one "meh" project. Despite recent controversy, I still see Pixar as #1.

Yes, in my mind there's a canonical TV show featuring Buzz Lightyear an it was what inspired the toy.

But I think that show takes itself more seriously than the one produced by Disney in real life.

Yes, perhaps it represents Batman:TAS in the Toy Story universe, or perhaps the classic X-Men series. Basically, cartoons that are well regarded by adults to this day, 20 years later. <3

Or maybe Buzz doesn't comes from a cartoon, but from a film, or something.

Or he was always a toy and then the franchise expanded, like Hasbro's Transformers.

Good idea! I think it could be a really good sci-fi show. Like Star Trek for little kids!
